Manchester United legend Ryan Giggs has admitted that he would be interested in succeeding John Toshack as manager of the Wales national team.
The 36-year-old is the favourite to take charge when Toshack steps aside and is confident that he can combine that job with his continuing playing career with the Red Devils.
He told the Daily Telegraph: "If you go into management, the big job is to be in charge of your country and I'm no different in terms of thinking like that.
"At the moment it is difficult, because I still have commitments as a player, but I always use the Mark Hughes situation as an example.
"One minute he is playing for Wales and in the Premier League with Blackburn Rovers, then the next thing you know, he is managing his country.
"Sparky never really planned for that."
